before them, and that's something i think we should discuss in the united states. >> let me read you something i know you're probably quite familiar with. for our viewers, something the president has said repeatedly. this he said at the beginning of the year. as president of the united states i don't bluff. i think both the iranian and the israeli governments recognize that when the united states says it is unacceptable for iran to have a nuclear weapon, we mean what we say. do you disagree with that? >> i think that when he says that implicitly is that he will stop them before they have a nuclear weapon, which means they'll draw red lines. i think it's important to communicate it. i wouldn't bet -- i wouldn't bet the security of the world and my own country's future from a country that threatens our annihilation and murders civilians en masse in syria and brutalizes its own people. i wouldn't bet the future on intelligence for simple reasons. american intelligence and israeli intelligence that cooperate together. that wonderful success about saving lives and alerting the people, and
country. your choice. >>> we would like to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world to this, the democratic national convention, as charlotte, north carolina. i'm on the convention floor, i'm wolf blitzer. the first lady of the united states, michelle obama, has tonight's most critical job, reminding voters why they liked her husband enough to put him in the white house, and to make the case for giving him another four years. ining us now inrco all of thiweek,nderson cooper, high above the floor. >> our w sws whyhat case is more urgent than ever for the democrat. nesn mitt romney's convention bous. what are the numbers? their convtion tonight, ts let'slook at that very question. we know governor romney got a one-point bounce out of his convention, not so great, about half what the president got four years ago. not a big bounce. where does that leave us? the democrats' opening night two months from a critical election day. doesn't get any closer than that. 48-48. >> the convention will pay tribute to a champion of health care reform, the late senator edward kennedy,
in and see him. him is the president of the united states. he's very much a junior partner. that is the new vice presidency. and that's what's really changed. it began under mondale and was that way to our country -- well, it wasn't so useful under cheney but i think now the vice president is a junior partner. he's explained to barack obama. looking up to him as a smarter guy, perhaps a tougher guy. but certainly with great loyalty. >> ed shultz, we're leading up to the president's speech. what are your impressions there? >> he was trying really hard tonight. he was trying to get as emotionally connected to the audience as he possibly could. it wasn't his smoothest performance, but it was effective. you could tell the crowd was involved. they know this man. they know what he's about. he's a genuine guy. high on sincerity, believable. i thought it was good testimony to the president. >> chris? >> i don't think we've seen that pitch of the president so far. the idea that it's about his judgment and what's in his gut and this kind of undescribable part of his being that can make the right call
, and we have sat still and watched this massacre go on now with over 20,000 people in the united states of america. the president of the united states has not said a word on behalf of the people who are being slaughtered and it is shameful. >> what type of leadership here? >> the turks and everybody in the region are crying out for american leadership and we should lead. voice the moral support as ronald reagan did for the people behind the iron curtain and this president will not do that. and establish a fight or a sanctuary or free zone where they can organize. look, everything that we worried about if we intervened would happen has now -- it happened because we didn't. there is a rise of al qaeda, and rise of extremisism and now a greater threat of the use of chemical weapons and this president unbelievably announced that the only thing he said is that if bashar al assad used chemicalsweapons, he has crossed the line and isn't that suggesting that everything up to that point is acceptable? >> and last month more than 70 iraqi officials were killed. >>> in pakistan, a christian girl a
will win this election, finish what we started and remind the world why the united states is the greatest nation on earth. >> the great debate five days away. why romney has to win and why obama can't afford to lose. i'll talk to my political a-team. also, bibi and the bomb. >> a red line should be drawn right here. >> after dropping this on the u.n. yesterday, he talks to obama and romney today. what israel's line in the sand would mean for all of us. plus, have you seen chelsea lately? >> nobody knows what the hell they're getting into when they're running for president. >> one of my favorites guests is back. >> i'm single, yes. >> if men are watching this -- >> yeah, i'm available. you know, just call me maybe. >> funny, feisty as ever, with a new look for her talk show. this is "piers morgan tonight." >>> good evening. the big story, the great debate. in just five days the event that could change the race for the white house permanently. the clock is ticking and the candidates know it. they meet face-to-face on wednesday. this weekend, both will be locked behind closed doors in practi
the race there, really. and that underdogs usually get on the stage with the president of the united states, they feel that vibe, they're at parity and i think she basicsly broadcasting it's okay and we expect it if the underdog wins here. but here's what i think has to happen for mitt romney. he needs to bring this race back to a referendum on obama. it was a referendum on president obama for awhile as any re-election should be, then it was a choice. now it's actually a referendum on mitt romney. he needs to shift the referendum back into the incumbent and have the debate questioners really hold the president to account for some answers in libya, his silence on syria and certainly the economy. >> jennifer, it's going to be a fascinating night, the debate. i can't wait to watch it. there is a point there, barack obama hasn't done a debate now for quite a long time. mitt romney spent most of the year debating and he got better and better. i thought actually he was a very good debater. one of the reasons he won the nomination was his ability to swat away all comers. so i would think this coul
president obama. >> well, president obama has been the president of the united states for the last four years and the best training to be the president of the united states is to be successfully the president of the united states, which he has been. >> then we should always do away with the second term and say, let's go on for eight years. do you agree that fundament fundamentally -- >> no. we wouldn't have these unemployment numbers and now 360,000 people have given up and if they stayed in the workforce we would have 8.4 unemployment and 47 million people on food stamps and heading for the largest rate of poverty in the last 50 years. household income is down $4,000 and how can anyone say that we are better off, and by the way, a number not talked about enough is the deficit is 7.6%. that is equal to greece. we have a deficit the same as greece. >> so taking that deficit number, and letting me put some other figures up for the audience. in the economy right now, and gas prices are high. we are $16 trillion in debt, and there is, there are 43 months of unemployment over 8%. how do you
and a white america and latino america and asian america. there's a united states of america. >> eight years after the keynote that launched his national career, four years after becoming the nation's first african-american nominee, tonight president barack obama accepts the nomination a second time. tonight the president makes his case for four more years. >> four more years. >> america needs four more years. >> tonight more from the first lady, vice president biden, caroline kennedy, the foo fighters? yes, the foo fighters. weather moved tonight indoors. but after a first night owned by michelle obama, after a second night owned by president clinton, expectations for the finale are sky high. msnbc's primetime coverage of the democratic national convention's final night begins right now. >>> thank you for joining us. i'm rachel maddow here at msnbc headquarters in new york. i'm joined by ed shultz, melissa harris-perry, chris hayes, and the senior strategist steve schmidt. lawrence o'donnell and al sharpton will be joining us in a moment. leading us from the site of the convention is our co
, the united states is doing well and you know, i think that's a kind of typical no drama obama response. >> alex, is that what it is, the cool head of the president? >> i think there's something to that, but i think there's also a little more, and that is that this president's great strength is his intellect. he lives inside his head and his ideas. and part of it is he doesn't really feel your pain like paul's former boss, bill clinton, but he can memorize a study about it, you know. people are distant from this president. there's a certain sense of arrogance to this white house that they're just detached from it and i think that's a vulnerability. we have two elite candidates running for president. we have an academic elite, barack obama, running against financial elite. so the middle class is up for grabs here. >> alex, i want to ask you about something i saw you tweet over the weekend. you said when i see romney he looks like a candidate. when i see obama he looks like a president. this should not be hard to fix, so fix it. what do you mean? wasn't one of the governor's big selling p
in the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we begin with the dramatic highs and lows in the race for the white house. now in full swing with the conventions over in both campaigns laser focused on november. the spotlight had barely cooled for president obama's big night when the latest unemployment report cast a shadow over the democratics' post-convention glow. mitt romney called it the hangover to the party in charlotte. the labor department says u.s. employers added only 96,000 jobs in august, fewer than expected, although the jobless rate did fall to 8.1%. our chief business correspondent, ali velshi, is joining us now to take a closer look inside the numbers. ali, the unemployment rate went down, but that's not necessarily a positive development. explain what's going on. >> you know, i've said for years that it's just easier to look at the number of jobs created or lost as opposed to the unemployment rate. and i'll explain that to you in a second. but the number of jobs added in august was 96,000. now, if you look at the pattern o
, blunt words from bill clinton. the 42nd president of the united states on the nuclear threat from iran. you trust ahmadinejad? >> not on this, i don't. >> why should israel be allowed to have nukes? >> no one thinks that israel is about to drop a bomb on tehran. >> this master campaigner, what he would say to mitt romney. >> if he's going to double down on that 47% remark, that will cause difficulties because we now know that the overwhelming number of those people work and have children. >> and his take on president obama and the economy. how has he managed to avoid public retribution for not fixing the economy better than he has done? >> because this is not a normal time. >> plus his extraordinary work with the clinton global initiative. >> we don't have to produce miracles. all we have to produce is progress. we just keep pushing these rocks up the hichll. >> is the world ready for a clinton back in the office? >> i can run for president of ireland because of my irish heritage. >> this is "piers morgan tonight." good evening. the most powerful man and woman in the world are gathered
is in spite of the fact that we deny the holocaust, that we threaten israel and we demonize the united states and we do all this stuff, we want you to trust us. in spite of the fact that we won't cooperate with the international regime set up to avoid an arms race in the middle east and set up to avoid nuclear proliferation, we want you to trust us. so they don't have a tenable position. >> do you trust him? >> the reason nobody trusts him is because they don't have a tenable position. >> do you trust ahmadinejad? >> not on this, i don't. >> his argument is look, why should america be allowed nuclear weapons, why should israel, who have never admitted they have them, why should they be permitted to have them. why should many countries be allowed nuclear weapons and not iran? >> well then, why isn't he going for some bigger nonproliferation initiative instead of acting like what he really wants is a nuclear bomb because that will help to get everybody to get rid of their nuclear weapons. no serious person believes that. israel is not supporting hezbollah. israel doesn't send terrorists across
for the united states and the things that he's done for humanity, what a credible voice tonight. what a credible voice. as much as he has been through, as much as he was targeted, he can speak from experience and say i never hated those guys. i wanted to get something done, and he did. i thought he spoke very well to the economy tonight too. he made the case about the philosophy of success, about, you know, wealthy people doing a little bit more because they can. i mean, i thought he had a great -- >> i think before you lead the hate part, because he talked about people proud of being -- their kids being born in america, which referred to this is a deeper and different kind of hate. they hated hillary clinton for what she wanted to do. they hated him for what they wanted to do. they hate president obama because of what he wants to do and because of what he is. that's what he was eluding to. which was a different hate than bill clinton. they never asked bill clinton for his birth certificate. so he understands the levels of hate here. as much as they fought hillary and him, they never asked him f
. tonight this was it's going to behe renomination of a sitting president of the united states. and so, the enthusiasm and the passion was there inside the room. it's a bigger convention as other folks have pointed out. there was more information in the room to begin with and then you had these great speakers and nobody was really saying look at me, i'm going to be the next president of the united states. at least not yet. >> there is no question there will be a lot of talk here about 2014 but the main focus is on 2012. the dpems were not mistake free. their platform does not mention god. their platform changes language about israel. juz lem is the capital and israel is our strongest ally. a lot of people would wonder why you're making the changes. it's the same candidate. we're trying to get answers on that. >> why would you also remove the word god? why would you deliberately allow the republicans to come in and go to all of their base and say look at this guy? he has removed the word god. >> somebody made a mistake and somebody or somebodies in the campaign didn't catch it. in terms
public investments. our good schools, our universities. medicare, security. and that in the united states when those two have met, when individual initiative has met with a common sacrifice and investment by the nation, that's what's created upward mobility. and the ability to reach the american dream in our society that makes america unique. and i put before the nation the clear choice that we have in this election between a leader in barack obama who will -- who has been doing that, making those investments and will in the future and another leader who would scale back from those investments and therefore i think hinder america's ability to be the land of opportunity going forward for everyone. >> where did you come up with that line of the night? i think it was the best line so far in this convention where you said mitt romney said just ask your old man for money when you want to start a business. you said why didn't i think of that? where did you come up with that great sarcasm? >> what i wanted to do was be optimistic but point out the differences. as the first lady pointed out very
the united states and went to mexico and supposed to be tracked to gun cartel. two of those guns were found in the murder scene. >> this statement from representative issa. this is one more step to justice for the family of briantery. ultimately not only the bandid but those who put the gun in their hand must be held accountable. peter doocy is following the story. >> jesus mesa is in the custody of mexican authorities who apprehended him. five men are charged with the murder of u.s. border patrol agent brian terry. they are not saying which man fired the fatal shot. but all of the five then crossed the southern border to run drug smugglers and was spotted by the u.s. border patrol who engaged them in a fight that left agent terry dead. two of the suspects left behind were linked to a united states justice department sting fast and furious designed to let bad guys bay -- buy the guns and go across the border and hope they would build cases against the leader of drug cartel. they are trying to find out who is to blame for fast and furious. but president obama exerted executive privilege the

of the united states. it is a job that brings with it a lot of speaking responsibilities and oh, my god, could you see that tonight. first lady tonight, a long, personal, emotionally, frankly excellent speech from michelle obama. chris matthews? >> certainly made the connection, don't you think? i mean, so much of tonight was interactive. it was between her and that audience in the room. i thought the camera work was so important watching this on television. you saw on the faces of men and women, black and white, all different backgrounds, the connection. she was with people. the emotional connection, telling the story of her love affair with her husband. with her life of getting ahead. but there was one big difference than four years ago which just came through in the earlier speeches tonight. it was hope and change, yes, hope and change but not hope and change imaginally overnight. but hope through work and patience and time and effort and then change. i think it was a much more mature look at their own lives as they got there. i'll tell you, i assume most americans watching tonight who have
and the next president of the united states, barack obama. >> thank you, mr. chairman. ohio casts 188 votes for barack obama. >> that's not a surprise, ohio, not a surprise at all. that ohio puts president obama over the top. those who are remaining here, the delegates and the guests are cheering because he now once again officially is the democratic presidential nominee, so they can move forward on this. it's not going to be a surprise, jessica, and candy. you know what, i believe that joe biden will get the vice presidential nomination later tonight as well. >> this arena is about one third full for his speech. >> hold on a second. we'll get that microphone of yours working. we're not hearing you. biden will get the official vice presidential nomination tomorrow. jessica, give me a takeaway of what we've seen on this second day of the democratic convention? >> well, former president clinton had a three-fold mission to energize the party base, to draw a strong distinction for the democrats and republicans, and to sort of establish president obama's credibility on his economic vision. that
. there is the united states of america. there is not a black america and a white america and latino america, an asian america, but there is the united states of america. >> from the first time he took to the convention speech as the keynoter in 2004, there has been no doubt that barack obama can step into the spotlight and dazzle. four years later in denver the optics match the excitement for the presidential campaign with greek columns surrounding him in front of a crowd of more than 75,000. the democratic nominee delivered an electrifying speech. >> out of work, tough luck, you are on your own. no health care? the market will fix it. you're on your own. born into poverty? pull yourself up by your own boot straps, even if you don't have boots, you are on your own. [ cheers and applause ] >> well, it is time for them to own their failure. it is time for us to change america, and that's why i'm running for president of the united states. >> this week in tampa republicans argue that barack obama is a great talker who doesn't deliver. it frames a dilemma for a third speech at the democratic national con
. they went after these militia extremists which are al qaeda-affiliated themselves. the united states is more popular in libya than any country in the arab world, but they need help. after it was over, did we give them the assistance they needed? no. their borders are porous. al qaeda is coming in. they don't have a strong government. they have a people that like the united states of america. in afghanistan we are having americans killed by "insiders." >> the troops that we're training. >> yeah. >> forces we are training in uniform. they just inflicted the greatest damage on kandahar since the tet offensive. they blew up irreplaceable aircraft, and it's because the president has consistently overruled the recommendations of his military advisors. the chickens are coming home to roost, and the president won't even talk about it. >> let me ask you two quick questions. one of them i just want to say cnn did not put out the ambassador's diary. we did a report off of it. i want to make that clear to our viewers. >> by the way, i don't have a problem with that. the reason why the administration obj
of the united states ever handed a bigger financial crisis over to the guy that followed him than george bush did? >> well, if you look at -- >> yes or no. >> yeah, sure. >> who? >> herbert hoover. herbert hoover. >> well, herbert hoover took all the same policies, i mean, fdr didn't do anything that herbert hoover didn't do. higher taxes, more spending, more regulations, and it didn't work for hoover -- >> are you saying that fdr was the same as herbert hoover? >> well, he did hoover took tax rates up to 75% from 25%, fdr took them up towards 90%. he did massive spending, did all that regulation of the farm industry. nothing particularly new, just a little bit more and of course, it didn't work -- >> but grover, grover, interesting parallel. an interesting parallel. >> that's remarkable. >> wait, wait, wait. unless my memory's wrong, fdr was the only other president in certainly modern history who ever got re-elected with unemployment over 8% because the people believed that he had the right vision going forward to turn things around. isn't that a very similar position to what we're now seei
had the look of a shotgun marriage. is that any reason to make some guy president of the united states? is it. there's a reason obama got a bounce and romney did a thud. one guy people really love in charlotte giving the speeches of their lives, bill and michelle and deval patrick and castro. remember what romney got? chris christie up there giving testimonials to themselves. they barely got around to paying for their supper they were so full of themselves. romney has had two chippies, going over to get acquainted with the brits and going to tampa to get the kudos. in both cases he ended up laying more eggs than the easter bunny but people like the easter bunny. joining me is howard fineman and jim vandehei. it seems to me what happened the last two weeks was patently obvious. within convention worked, one didn't. one was sweet, one was sour. one you felt the vibes of happiness. the other one was you felt something but it was usually hatred of the president. >> yeah. well, chris, i spent every evening on the floor of the convention at both conventions, and at the republican convention
nominee for president of the united states shared his deepest beliefs about the two kinds of people in this country, those who give, like him, and those who take and loaf and vote for obama. joining me now is david corn with mother jones the author of "showdown," out in paper back, and "new york times" jonathan heilemann. we have new tape to show you from that fund-raiser including what he said about the israeli/palestinian conflict. before we get to that, here is that shocking tape from romney talking about the 47% of americans who he says are definitely not voting for -- are definitely voting for obama, not for him. he was answering a question from a donor apparently. the tape was first posted by the great mother jones magazine. let's watch. >> 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. all right. there are 47% who are with him who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they're entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it. that that's
not authorize the fast and furious operation that allowed 2000 weapons from the united states, mexico, and they were in the drug trafficking hands. i think that 200 mexicans might have died and also american agent brian terry. there is a report that 14 agents were responsible for the operation. shouldn't attorney general eric holder. he should have known about that and if he didn't, should you fire him? >> first of all, i think it's important for us to understand that the fast and furious program was a field initiated program begun under the previous administration. when eric holder found out about it, he discontinued it. but i will will tell you that eric holder has my complete confidence because he has shown himself to be willing to hold accountable those who took these actions. >> so this notion that the idea that it started previous administration and as jake tapper points out in a piece this morning that no it didn't start under the actual gun walking did but not the fast and the fearous actual program. >> nine months into the obama administration. fast and furious is as a progra
